    GUT GESPIELT,
    der Mensch und sein Avatar

    GUT GESPIELT erzählt von der Beziehung zwischen SpielerIn und Spielfigur und fragt, inwiefern das Ich im Spiel nicht ein anderes ist, sondern etwas mit mir zu tun hat. Vom imaginierten Alter Ego beim Schattenboxen über die verkleideten Cosplayer und Furries bis hin zum Charakter im Videogame: Der Mensch steht in einem spannungsreichen Verhältnis zwischen Spielwelt und Realität.

    Architecture Invisible

    Screening curated by Katie Goodwin & Annelore Schneider

    11th of November 2017 – 6- 8:30pm

    The Swiss Church, 70 Endell Street, WC2H 9DY London

    Each video explores a specific location, often an overlooked cultural or social site, to find the sense of a place. The architecture becomes a living reality evolving far from the precision of its original design. Be it through the collapse of a civilisation or erosion by nature or just being no longer relevant.

    Video artists in line up so far : Emily Richardson, Anne-Charlotte Finel, Catriona Leahy, Vincent Ceraudo, David Lewandowski, Yelena Popova, Sujin Lim, Simon Senn, Katie Goodwin & collectif_fact.

    Doors open at 6pm for drinks and looped work by Catriona Leahy. The screening starts at 6:30pm. There will be an interval.

    Free entry. Pay bar.

    SIGNS OF REPRESENTATION

    The Swiss association White Frame and independent distributor Hamaca presents ‘Signs of Representation’, a co-curatorial video art program showcasing selected productions from Switzerland and Spain. These two organisations established in Basel and in Barcelona have entered into a dialogue through the curated work of Chantal Molleur from White Frame and Albert Alcoz representing Hamaca. The two programs explore the different ideological and artistic concerns of the artists. The results are varied in forms conveying the multiple possibilities of what the medium has to offer technologically for the various images and sounds represented in these productions.
